The Di­vorce

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

Mon­day, ABC, 9.30pm Now, this is some­thing dif­fer­ent. A col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the ABC and Opera Aus­tralia, this new four-part se­ries is an opera set in soapie ter­ri­tory. Fea­tur­ing an amaz­ing cast, in­clud­ing Lisa McCune (Blue Heel­ers), opera su­per­star Ma­rina Prior, home­grown heart­throbs Hugh Sheri­dan, Matthew McFarlane (pic­tured) and tal­ented mu­si­cian Kate Miller-Hei­dke, this oper­atic com­edy is from play­wright Joanna Mur­ray-Smith and com­poser Elena Kats-Ch­ernin. We are in­vited to watch what tran­spires when an art critic and his wife throw a party for their friends and fam­ily to cel­e­brate their di­vorce, what they call their “con­scious un­cou­pling”, at their coun­try es­tate. Hi­lar­i­ous and in­no­va­tive.
